The optical sensors

Optical sensors emitting invisible infrared light are also one of the most mainstream technologies in industry and industrial automation. This type of sensors can be seen in many different forms and combinations in our daily life. The technology we use determines several main categories of optical sensors, namely:

Diffuse type optical sensors
Barrier-type optical sensors
Reflector type optical sensors
To follow labels
Slot type
To track a marker
With optical cable
Applications

Optoelectronic sensors find hundreds of applications both in everyday life and in industry. From registering the car when passing the barrier at the entrance of a shopping center to checking the position of a small glass bottle on the assembly line. Optical sensors are a major part of the printing, food processing and engineering industries.

Specifications and technology

Most common optical sensors emit infrared light that reaches the surface of an object, is reflected, and returns back to the sensor. They are divided into three types according to whether the receiver and emitter are in the same housing (diffuse), whether they are in separate housings (barrier) and whether the light beam is directed to a reflector (reflector). Barrier and reflector sensors are used when a longer operating distance is required and when the object is more difficult to read, such as objects with reflective surfaces.

Outside the group of standard sensors, in our portfolio you can find marker sensors that are an integral part of the packaging industry (the questionable black or colored rectangles at the end of the packaging of a waffle, croissant, chips or toothpaste). Thanks to the sensor in this application, the machine performs subsequent operations such as gluing or cutting the package. Label tracking sensors based on optical technology are an excellent solution for registering very small labels at high speeds on the label web. These sensors with optical cable or fiber, suitable for precise reading of thin objects.

The main enemies of optical sensors are dust, which is often characteristic of most production processes, and of course the surface of the object, its reflectance, transmittance and color.
